I Am Not My Disease
There have been, are, and will be days when the pain feels absolutely bone-shattering and soul-crushing. Trying to control the pain is like being in quicksand - the more one struggles, the more likely one will die. Practicing the principles of acceptance and commitment therapy has created space for me to BE, to defuse from my diagnosis, and begin re-redefining my life, centering on who and what are most meaningful and valuable to me.
